Veracyte announces publication of clinical data for Afirma Xpression Atlas

Veracyte announced the publication of new data demonstrating the clinical and analytical validity of its Afirma Xpression Atlas genomic test, which is used to help guide surgery and treatment decisions for patients with likely or confirmed thyroid cancer.The Afirma XA uses RNA whole-transcriptome sequencing to detect expressed DNA variants and RNA fusion partners in over 500 genes that are associated with thyroid cancer. The test is performed on fine needle aspiration samples of thyroid nodules deemed suspicious for cancer by Veracyte's Afirma Genomic Sequencing Classifier, as well as those that are suspicious for or have been diagnosed as cancer based on cytopathology. Importantly, the Afirma XA is performed on the same FNA sample as the Afirma GSC, obviating the need for patients to undergo an additional FNA procedure to obtain this genomic information about their thyroid. To evaluate the Afirma XA's clinical validity, researchers compared the test's ability to identify genomic variants in an FNA sample's transcriptome to currently accepted methods of targeted DNA and RNA sequencing. Using 943 blinded FNA samples, they found the Afirma XA had high positive predictive agreement with targeted DNA sequencing and targeted RNA sequencing. Similarly, using 695 blinded FNA samples to look for RNA fusions, the Afirma XA had an 82 percent PPA with targeted RNA sequencing. Conversely, 95 percent or more of variants and fusions identified by Veracyte's RNA whole-transcriptome sequencing test were also identified by the reference method. The researchers also investigated the reproducibility of the Afirma XA across laboratories and reagent lots. Using 69 variant-positive FNA samples, they found that the Afirma XA showed high accuracy between two different labs with different personnel for detecting variants and fusions.

Veracyte initiated with a Buy at Needham
Needham analyst Stephen Unger started Veracyte with a Buy rating and $33 price target. The company has "significant potential for meaningful" long-term revenue growth as its advanced diagnostic tests that improve patient outcomes, while also reducing diagnostic costs, commercializes, Unger tells investors in a research note. The analyst believes Veracyte's Afirma Gene Expression Classifier is a well established test used by U.S. physicians to improve the diagnosis of thyroid nodules.

Veracyte initiated with a Buy at Lake Street
Lake Street analyst Thomas Flaten started Veracyte with a Buy rating and $35 price target. Veracyte can expand its offering to improve decision-making across the patient care continuum by leveraging its technology and bioinformatics platforms to develop and commercialize new product offerings, Flaten tells investors in a research note. He believes the company's late 2019 nasal swab test data for lung cancer "could further validate this evolution."
